helsea face Wolves this afternoon as they bid to arrest a poor run of form and make sure of a top-four spot in the Premier League.
A five-point gap to fifth-placed Tottenham suggests a degree of comfort for the Blues ahead of the final four games but defeat to Everton last time out means they have picked up just four points from a possible 12.
Chelsea have only managed to win half of their home league games this season and take on a Wolves side which held them to a goalless draw at Molineux in December.
Having fallen to three defeats in a row, Bruno Lage faces an uphill battle to secure European football for his team although they remain within reach of seventh-placed West Ham.
